    I have not heard anything about a sale? Are you sure it’s definitely DA?

    Wow those prices 😳 Well my understanding is DA keeps their bare roots in cold storage so they’ll still be dormant when they arrive. Personally I’d just give them a good soak and plant out as normal, making very sure to keep them well watered.

    Yes exactly @Omori ! I just popped on to see if the were selling potted yet and found them. Almost too good to resist but....

    @Kmeh Can’t see the sale pricing anymore, do you think it was a mistake?
